Virtual: The Boulder Jewish Film Festival Presents Unchained TV Series and Panel Discussion

Date: August 31, 2020
Time: 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

If you are looking for the next tv series to watch from Israel, we've got just the ticket. Unchained is the story of Yossef Mourad and his wife Hannah, and takes the viewer into the closed-off, ultra-orthodox Haredi world, and touches on the most painful place where Jewish law clashes with modern life - the status of women in society. A devout Rabbi-detective, whose job is to free the women whose husbands deny them a divorce and a new life, finds that in his own home lurks a secret that threatens his world and marriage.

Unchained is not available through the usual streaming channels but the producers have made the series available for our community for a 20% discount using this link.

Follow this link for a Vimeo trailer for the series.

You have the whole month of August to binge watch this show and then join us for a panel discussion on the series led by Founding Director of the Boulder Jewish Film Festival, Kathryn Bernheimer; Daphne Lazar Price, Executive Director of JOFA (Jewish Orthodox Feminist Alliance); and Morah Yehudis Fishman.

The Zoom link for the panel discussion will be emailed to you within 24 hours of the program's start time.
